    See woodcutters thread and I want to try bologna. Its nepas recipe.
    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/155695/amish-bologna-and-kabanosy-snack-sticks

    After my last fail I took the advise and ground my own meat.

    .99 cent picnics.


    Double ground the pork and venison through a 1/4 in plate then 1/8 plate.

    Pork



    Venison.



    No pics of the seasoning or stuffing. Sorry hard to do it myself and take pics.

    Mixed and in the fridge overnight.



    Stuffed in rings? Kinda.






    Took 10 hours to reach 158. Thought that took too long. Oh well. Used pitmasters blend from Todd for 4 hours.

    All done finally.


    Water bath to cool down.


    Out of the bath.



    Into the fridge for a bloom but I had to do a taste test.



    All though it took along time to reach IT it was still very moist. Had a good flavor. Might add to the spice mix next time to get something more out of it.

    No wrinking of the casings this time. I will for sure grind my own meat from now on.

    More pics tomorrow.

    I agree. Let it sit in the refrig for a bit and the flavors will become more pronounced.

    I tried more tonight.

    I just feel it needs something else, don't get me wrong its very good. I will keep making it just like this but do some experiments with it too.

    This turned out really good. The Mrs and I got to taste a sample. We finished it all quickly. Great smooth texture. The casings kinda got really moist and melted right into the bologna flavor and texture. I'm guessing the water bath does that? Hit some larger garlic pockets in some areas. Nothing that I'd complain about at all. Big Thumbs up for this. Thumbs Up

    Thanks Mark.

    I need to get the garlic minced better and the casing did turn out great.


    Thanks Disco, I just wish I am really that good. This is a great and easy recipe to make .
